The Month of Poh

A Poem by INNI KAUR

 

 

 

 

 

December 14, 2017 -  January 12, 2018




The month of Poh has arrived.
My shawl is soaked.
Cold bites my bones,
My being shivers.

Where have you gone?
Leaving me alone,
Why have you gone?
I have no knowledge.

The nights of Poh are relentless,
Like the mountain’s harshness.
I cannot see the moon and stars,
Every night is torturous.

Beloved, without you,
My courtyard is empty,
My home is foreign.
Alone, I weep.

O’ Beloved!
Without you, I am nothing.
Tell me,
Do you feel something?

O' Beloved!
I wait
In agony
For you …

The above verse is inspired by Bhai Vir Singh's "Kant Mahali" poem.
